    No. Increase your squat and DL a lot and your waist WILL grow. Heavy weights increase your core size and strength. It is a fact. Gain about 30-40 pounds and heft some heavy poundages and you will find out.

    So you are saying the bone structure itself will grow, or that the accessory muscles will grow causing the increased waist size?

    The Density of your bones will increase. Your tendons will become steel cables and yes your entire core will become carved out of marble. AS LONG as you train and eat correctly. I am not talking fat increase in the midsection either. Your erector spinae,obliques and all abdominis groups will all strengthen and grow. Heavy weights can and will do this to you.

  4. All this talk of squatting and deadlifting makes me want to throw a few plates on each side of the bar and go at it! :drool:

  5. and yes, I don't even work my obliques as they are big enough from heavy squatting and deads.

  6. erector spinae and abdominals will grow in response to deadlifts squats, so yes you could add some width to your waist... but if your adding inches and inches, then your prob just getting fat.

  7. Arnold was notorious for his small waist - his favorite lift - straight leg deads. I think the waist growth is very minimal.

    Arnold was chemically and genetically gifted, so that point is moot, I definitely feel there is at least to some degree an increase in the size of the midsection, due to the stress of the exercises, it was already written much clearer by somebody else.

  9. You cannot gain entrance into heaven unless you squat and deadlift.

    The Native Americans smoked herbs to bring them visions of God because they didn't have barbells and squat racks. Thankfully we have these things today and can be one with the universe through the sacrament of the squat and dead.
